Dish Tailgater works great

Got my Dish Tailgater activated today. Bought it for my tag-along to use in the summer months.

Setup took about 5-10 mins plus the time on the phone setting up my account.

Got the 200 channel package with HD for $75 a month. Probably will scale that back a bit after I do some research on all the packages.

It was pretty foolproof - just place the dish somewhere with exposure to the southern sky and turn on the box. That was about it.

Picture looks good. Channels change instantly. I like it.

We enjoy our Tailgater very much as well. Have used it many times now.

I have security cables (7' and a 30') and a padlock.

Gio - how did you mount yours? Or are you saying you just balanced it on your roof?

We've looked at these but would prefer not to take up room in a compartment if it could be mounted safely somewhere - on the ladder?

thanks!

You can buy a ladder mount for it but i saw one going down the freeway and it looked like it was doing an Irish jig. So i made a mounting plate of 12 gauge alum. and removed the rubber feet and used those holes, "1/4x20" to mount it to the plate, then mounted the plate to the roof. Not hard but i have the tools and material and i like doing that sort of thing....

I'venever had to worry about someone swiping something - especially a conspicuous item like a sat dish. I've always found that crotchety old farts are busy watching everyone else's business, that thieves really don't have a chance!

Generally I'll just stick it inside the trailer - it's bulky, but very light. It's going to be the first thing you put out, so I wouldn't dedicate compartment space to it.
